Government Surveillance

Letter to PCLOB on Reforms to Surveillance Under EO 1233

CDT submitted comments detailing our views and recommendations regarding the conduct and oversight of Intelligence Community activities undertaken pursuant to Executive Order 12333 (“EO 12333”) in response to the request of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (“PCLOB”) for public comment. These comments are intended to aid the PCLOB in its research on the topic by examining human rights and examples of best practices in the oversight of secret-surveillance programs, and concise academic discussions of the restrictions that apply to surveillance, including transborder surveillance, under international law.
